Today we’re highlighting our ebook collection for Libraries Week. We have a truly fantastic ebook service at Edinburgh Libraries offering you access to 12,500 titles for adults, teens and kids. You’ll find a wide range of genres in fiction and non-fiction – there’s definately something for everyone!
Our OverDrive system makes it super easy for you to find and borrow books whether through their fantastic Libby app on your tablet or phone or their website on your computer. Some of our favourite things about OverDrive are-
- It’s super-easy to get started – just login with your library card and PIN
- You can borrow from anywhere – at home, on the bus, or on the beach in Spain
- You can change the font / size / background colour to suit your own eyesight
- New stock is added twice a month to keep the site fresh
- You can borrow ten titles (in addition to your physical loans from the library)
- When the library is closed – OverDrive is open! Its like having a library branch in your own home
- There is a dyslexic font available
- You can access a great range of specialised collections – Reading Well for Mental Health, LGBT, Bibliotherapy, Read-a-long ebook/audiobooks for children
- As well as ebooks there’s audiobooks and comics on OverDrive
- You’ll find Polish ebooks and audiobooks available too
OverDrive is incredibly easy to use and you’ll find full user
